bureaucratic, top-heavy, cumbersome organization
TEST ENGINEERING (Current Employee), Cambridge, ONMarch 12, 2015
has great potential, but it's unrealized. overly process heavy and increasingly difficult to get work done. too many managers who give conflicting direction or no direction at all.

Good but shaky at times
Senior Member of Technical Staff (Former Employee), Cambridge, OnFebruary 28, 2015
Pros: good wage growth if you work hard, high-quality people
Cons: poor work-life balance, senior (high-wage) people vulnerable during layoffs
There are a lot of really good people working at COM DEV, especially on the front lines of engineers, technicians, assemblers, service group staff etc.

Middle management can be quite mercenary when the – more... company isn't making money - preferring to lay off (permanently) the highest wage earners despite the loss of experience.

There is an element of cronyism at play here and promotions/salaries are not always correlated with performance.

In general though, it is a good company to work for as long as you're in one of the more stable business units. – less

Working at Com Dev
Switch Test Technologist (Former Employee), Cambridge, ONOctober 22, 2014
A typical day at work would be when you got in you would check which tests were ready. You'd start working on your projects individually until the morning meeting was called and we could see priorities. – more... The rest of the day consisted of working to get all priorities done effectively.

I learned how to manage my time better, how to help get team goals complete, how to use equipment that I'd never seen before and work on military grade devices.

Management was good and ran a monthly meeting where people were given opportunities to facilitate projects for overall team improvements.

The hardest part of this job was moving up in your field or to another field.

The most enjoyable part of this job was the work environment and how helpful and friendly people were on my team. – less
